Mushihimesama is a vertical scrolling shmup (shoot 'em up) that has you playing as a teenage girl, Reco. Reco is on a quest to help cure her village from a mysterious illness and the way to do so is by traveling though the Shinju Forest and meet a god. This quest isn't going to be easy, the Shinju Forest is full of huge bugs and I'm not talking about the glitchy kind, I'm actually talking about giant insects (yikes). These bugs also require a human sacrifice of a 15 year old girl every 150 years to help give humans the resources they need to survive and Rico is the next one on the list to be on the chopping block. Thankfully, Reco isn't going through this journey alone as she has a bug of her own to help guide her though the forest. This bug is named Kiniro and he has a nice golden coat and a whole array of firepower. It's Studio Ghibli meets Starship Troopers (1997) in this fantasy shmup.

Nekopara Vol.0 (Volume Zero) is a visual novel comedy drama, also a side-story to the main Nekopara series. The story in this game is about a group of catgirls named Chocola, Vanilla, Maple, Azuki, Cinnamon, and their trainer, Shigure, a little girl with a weird obsession over her older brother, Kashou (oh, incest themes). The story starts off with Shigure, Chocola, and Vanilla waking up in shock to see that Kashou has gone to work at the La Soleil Cafe (see my review of Nekopara Volume One for more details) and have to spend the whole day without him. What will they do to pass away the time? Simple, all they do is simple everyday stuff like making meals, cleaning the house, and watching the television. Yep, there's nothing much to the story of this game but does that mean that this game is bad? (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Kyle is also lucky enough to be invited onto a television talent show to where he can show off his talents and become an official hero. Sadly, there are a few problems with Kyle becoming a superhero. The first is that his costume got stuck in the hot wash, so his costume is now purple instead of being red, white, and blue.

The Centerfold Girls is an anthology thriller movie containing three tales about the lives of nude female models that have all appeared in the centerfold of a famous men's magazine. All stories are linked in two ways: 1. They are all centerfold girls have all had a part in the same magazine. 2. There is a crazed killer that's after them and he won't stop unless he has murdered them all. The reason why this killer wants them dead is because he is an anti-sex guy and finds that stuff disgusting and degrading and so he wants them dead to help make the world pure (just think of the late Margret Thatcher but as a killer). The killer is only one part of the tale(s) as there is more to this story than just a crazed slasher. (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).
Magnetic by Nature, a platforming puzzle game that takes place in a cold and wet dystopian world full of ruins and rusted metal. In this cruel world you play as a little robot that has just awoken from being shut down, this robot gets charged up by a very special energy source that charges up machinery. The little robot starts to look around the place and finds a huge robot in need of repair, so the little robot tries to charge up the big robot with the special energy but is shocked (no pun intended) to see that he hasn't got enough of it in stock to bring the robot back to life (even though robots don't actually live anyway). The little robot discovers that the land is full of this special energy but trying to get more is going to be very difficult as the robot will have to go through some very dangerous areas full of ghastly spikes and harmful rivers of liquid. The little robot does discover something interesting and that's it has a special ability to create magnetic waves that can attach and detach to certain platforms. Godspeed, little robot dude.

This game has you playing as Abe, a simple everyday janitor/slave that works at a factory called Rupture Farms.

Abe is just doing his job at cleaning the halls as he typically does, however on this fine day he just happens to peek into a business meeting between all of the executives and overhears them talking about a new product. Abe is in shock as this new item on the menu is Abe's entire race, the Mudokon, on the menu to be slaughtered. Abe must now escape from Rupture Farms and help out his fellow Mudokon brethren and lead them to the promised land. Sadly the odds are against him as he must get past all of the security and even then the journey gets harder after that.

If that's not enough, you can create your own teams and league and become the ultimate coach of your very own make believe league. Will this game make you get out of the park and run for home to get to your computer? Or will it be a strike out? (Sorry for the painful puns and the out of left field apology). Find out after the jump and you might be pleasantly surprised with what I have to say about this game. (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

This volume opens up with Ryuko rejecting and leaving her Kamui, Senketsu, due to all of the crazy stuff that I dare not spoil as it is way too huge to spoil.

Jump/Boxer is a retro styled 2D action platformer that has you playing Dag, a martial artist who is also a master at the urban martial-art of parkour. The goal of the game is to get though the city but that's not going to be easy as there are dastardly traps and other martial art masters getting in your way. You will also have to do a lot of climbing and getting past some tricky platforms, thank goodness that Dag is both a martial artist and a master at parkour, otherwise any other normal person would be doomed as they'd be beaten up and thrown off the buildings (ouch). But enough with the padding and onto the part where I tell you if the game is good or not. (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

Ryoko is still trying to find to all of the pieces to her loyal friend and battle suit, Senketsu the Kamui, but is having a hard time trying to do so. Satsuki and the Elite Four are still dominating as they are more than a match for anyone in the Osaka region. It doesn't take long until we see the naked freedom fighters from a group called Nudist Beach come out to join the battle because the Elite Four are getting way to close to finding out where their secret base is hidden. That's not all that happens in this volume, there will be even more game changing deep secrets revealed in this volume and it will just blow your minds.

Superbike TT is a motorbike racing game that has you living your dream of becoming a motorcycle racer via virtual reality with help from the Oculus Rift. If you do not own an Oculus Rift (like me) then do not fear as this game can be played without one just fine. In this game you will be racing all over the world in countries such as Canada, Australia, Italy, and the United Kingdom, just to name a few. You'll also be racing in many different speed divisions and you'll be unlocking new bikes in the process. That's it, there's really not much to explain about to what this game is about, it's just a straight up good old fashioned racing game where the focus is on the racing instead of having some complicated story. Grab your helmets, rev intensely until you pre-maturely shoot out smoke from your exhaust pipe, it's time to race. (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Eden* (AKA Eden) is a dramatic visual novel set in a time where the Earth is nearly at an end, so most of the population have left the planet and gone into deep space. Only a few people are still left on Earth and this is where we see the main character of this story, a young adult named Ryou Haruna. Ryou is a very hardened soldier after having been to many wars and he is also an elite sniper with some serious skills. Ryou's latest mission has him stationed to a small island that has a very important science institute on it to where he'll be a bodyguard of an important person named Sion. Sion isn't your typical person as she is a type of human called a Felix (not the cat) that is also the next step up on the evolutionary ladder, so she possesses a lot of brains and has eternal youth when it comes to her looks. This island institute also has a lot of mysterious things going on and they will all unfold during Ryou's stay there. There's also a lot more going into this visual novel other than just a mystery and I'll get to that deeper into this review. It's the end of the world as we know it, but will this visual novel be fine? (Click "Read More" to read the full review).
